Truly disturbing statistics out by the Army today:
Pentagon officials say there were fewer Army suicides last year than they had feared. But it was still the highest number in almost two decades.
Two defense officials said Thursday that 108 troops committed suicide in 2007, the most since 1990. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the full report on the deaths wasn't being released until later Thursday.
I like how they try to downplay the numbers by saying "fewer than they had feared". Iraq is causing so much stress on our soldiers, and for what? So George Bush could achieve some "greatness" in his mind? Every solider killed either in action, or by their own hand, as well as every Iraqi life lost is the fault of this incompetent, arrogant, idiotic thing we call a President. Yes - he is a murderer and should be held accountable for his actions.
